American Pie in Grand Rapids Michigan

I'm not sure that I'd move to Grand Rapids Michigan just because of this video.  But they get a big Cheer for making a fun video.

This 9-minute “lip dub” of Don McLean’s “American Pie,” was created by the citizens of Grand Rapids, Michigan in response to the city’s inclusion in a Newsweek's list of "America’s Dying Cities"

Word today is that Arnold Schwarzenegger's new action-hero franchise, "The Governator", has been put on hold.

And we suspect a permanent freeze.

Take a look at what could have been:

The End is Near. Judgement Day, May 21, 2011

The end is near.

At least according to 89 year old Harold Camping, president of the Family Radio network.

For months, the network has been proclaiming that May 21, 2011 will be the day of Christ's second coming.

But why May 21?  Why not May 20?  Or May 22?

Seems that the Camping, a long time student of the Bible, has dome some fancy math.

And by his calculations, the date is May 21, 2011.

Apparently, Camping cites verses from the Bible that purport to foretell the beginning of the end.  Using his fancy math, 7,000 years from the Great Flood (yes, the one with Noah and family) equates to next Saturday.  Lots of earthquakes and world-wide chaos.

As for us, we'll see you all here on May 22, 2011.

Ashton Kutcher Joins Two and a Half Men. Winning?

We thought we had heard the last of Chrlie Sheen, Winning! and Two and a Half Men.

We were wrong.

Back into our lives comes two top twits.  Or is that twitters?

On May 12, Ashton Kutcher (who goes by the Twitter name aplusk) tweeted this:
"what's the square root of 6.25?"

The answer of course is 2 and a half.  Get it?  As in 2 and a Half Men.  The TV show he wants to join.

God help us all.

CBS official announcement soon followed:
The multi-talented Kutcher, whose success spans film, television and social media, will join Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones, Holland Taylor, Marin Hinkle and Conchata Ferrell on the top-rated series. Production on the ninth season of the Emmy Award-nominated TWO AND A HALF MEN will begin this summer for broadcast on the CBS Television Network in the fall.
Great. Just great.

Charlie Sheen, our favorite Warlock and no stranger to Twitter, chimed in with his own snarky remark regarding the potential low viewership.  But it appears that he removed it.

The Just End of Osama bin Laden

Justice has prevailed. Finally.

Osama bin Laden, the de facto leader of the world-wide terrorist movement, Al Qaeda, and the number One terrorist on the FBIs Most Wanted list, was shot and killed in a daring military operation by the United States military.

Hiding in plain site inside Pakistan, bin Laden appears to have gone off the electronic grid.  Avoiding the personal use of telephones, email and the web, he still directed terrorist activities.

Well, he did.  But no more.

Perseverance finally paid off for the US military.  Following up on leads obtained from captured terrorists and documents, they tracked down one of his most trusted couriers.

Sometimes when dross rises to the top, the best strategy is to shoot it.  And then dump it in the sea.
